Hi! My name is Nikhil Dharmaraj (he/him/his), and I'm a junior jointly concentrating in History & Literature (Modern World Track) and Computer Science, with a secondary degree in South Asian Studies. I’m originally from the Bay Area, CA, but on campus, am a proud resident of M*ther House! Outside of school, I'm really involved with Harvard South Asian Association (SAA), Harvard Ghungroo, and the Harvard Task Force for Asian Progressive Advocacy & Studies (TAPAS). Additionally, I’ve had the incredible opportunity to work on campus — as a Peer Advising Fellow (PAF) a member of the teaching staff for CS50, and an interdisciplinary student researcher through the Radcliffe Institute & Harvard College Research Program! In my free time, I love cooking, exploring new cities, sitting down in coffee shops, and pretending-to-work-but-not-really, staying up late with friends, and meeting new people/dogs.
